Dear Readers, My writing 'career' began rather late in life.  I retired about four years ago and suddenly had the spare time we all cherish.  I am a lifelong bibliophile, so it was not too surprising that I decided to write.  So far I have written two child...

Fairy Tale Book of the Week: Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara by Daisy Piper

Despite her highly abnormal name, Calandria Arabella Philomena Louisa Anastasia Richards tries very hard to fly under the radar. So she knows her life has gone crazy when she passes a note to her best friend: 

“Lewis—something strange happened to me this morning.I got a message in my Alpha Bits that said I was a princess and I had to help this place called Albion in their fight against an evil queen.

C.

P.S. Dad says you can come for pizza tonight."

On her quest to stop a bloodthirsty queen, Callie will have to steer a near-sighted dragon, decipher an ancient riddle, and learn to command a tiara that talks back! And to save this magical world she only just discovered, Callie must risk more than she ever thought possible...

"Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara is rip-roaring, side splitting good fun! It’s a modern day fairy tale filled with magic, laughter, and a delightful cast of characters that will sweep you off your feet.

Debut author Daisy Piper has created a charming and loveable young heroine who will steal your heart and keep you smiling from the first page to the last, in this classic tale of an everyday girl who discovers she can be and do so much more than she ever imagined possible. Readers will cheer from the rooftops for Callie, and will eagerly await the next instalment in this fresh and exciting new series."

-USA Today betselling author Julianne MacLean (From Amazon listing)

This is Misty, our seven year old chow-chow.  She is one of the best behaved dogs I have ever met. This is largely due to the two years of training that Selma put in with her. She has made at least one animal friend here on the campgrounds. There is a small...

Welcome

Welcome to my new Google+ site that represents the communications area of my blog, "Be A Child Again".

My first two books have been for children.  For a change, I decided to write a short-story for adults.  I discovered a web site that features Irish artists (newirishart.com).  As I looked at the impressive, displayed works, a few story concepts sprouted in my mind.

One picture was particularly intriguing.  It's entitled "Tuatha de Danaan Arriving In Ireland" and is by Roy Burns from Belfast.  I contacted him and suggested a collaboration.  He kindly agreed to allow the use of his picture as a cover for the story.  So, that is my current project.  This will be a fantasy short-story loosely based upon the myths, legends, and history of the Tuatha de Danaan in Ireland. I hope to have it completed by the end of March.  Stay tuned.

Introduction

"One day you may be old enough to enjoy fairytales again"

 - c. s. lewis

Welcome!  This Google+ page is the communications site for my author presence on the internet.  The other half is my blog, Be A Child Again.  It constitutes the contents site.  Hopefully, the sites will work together to offer a complete but constantly evolving package.

This two-part site is an extension of my writing.  I am quite interested in the Fairy Tale and Fantasy book genres.  Thus the site name: Be A Child Again.  If you arrived here after reading one of my books, I thank you and hope you enjoy this extension of my fantasy world.  If you arrived here by another path, I thank you also.  Either way, please consider joining my Be A Child Again circle.

Current posts about my books and upcoming events

Video book readings

Opportunities to interact with others interested in the Fairy Tale and Fantasy book genres


On the blog you will find such things as:
